YOGA FOR HEALING - SPECIAL MONTHLY OFFERING [donation based]
Our physical response to trauma and stress is instinctual; it just happens. Sometimes, that survival mechanism is so powerful that is stays turned "on" even after the threat or stress has passed. Other times, the stress is ongoing or chronic. This creates imbalance or separation between our mind, body and spirit; the residue of the trauma or stress negatively affects thoughts, emotions, hormones, sleep patterns, immunity and relationships. Yoga and mindfulness have been shown to positively impact these imbalances by activating the mechanisms that calm, soothe and re-integrate our mind and body.
This class includes gentle yoga poses, breathing and mindfulness exercises that ground and center the body. Practices will be offered as tools to build strength, flexibility and self awareness ( noticing sensation). Students are encouraged to move with curiosity vs. judgment, and make choices around what feels useful for them throughout the class. The intention here is to hold space and empower individuals to reclaim their bodies and build a set of self care practices that support them on their path toward healing. Accessible to all levels, no yoga experience needed. Ages 17 and up.
